Passing Transpennine Express trains at Victoria
It was only in May 2018 that regular Transpennine Express services were routed through Victoria on their way to Manchester Airport, making use of the new Ordsall Chord to end up at the "right" side of Piccadilly station.

Here, 185113 (left) heads out towards Newcastle, while a train for the airport formed by unit 185123 enters the station.
Manchester Victoria Station

Opened in 1844 (the present building dates to 1902), Manchester Victoria is the second busiest station in Manchester. It runs services mainly to destinations north and east of Manchester as well as Liverpool. There is also a Metrolink station on the line to Bury.
